REGARDING HIS ART:
“For me, making art has always been my primary way to communicate with the world. I’ve been drawing since I was capable of connecting crayon to paper and have been working my way through a variety of media and styles since.”
His #DrawingMusic series began in 2015. It is an ongoing set of portraits capturing a variety of musical artists from the 20th and 21st centuries. Over 300 pieces have been completed to date.
Nate’ s work has been shown in Northern California, Los Angeles, Malibu, Santa Monica, and Pasadena. He has contributed work to numerous charities and non profits including the Silverlake Conservatory Of Music where his work was sold along side notables including Shepard Fairey, Damian Hirst, Jeff Koons, Retna, and Ed Ruscha.
REGARDING HIS MUSIC:
Nate began making CDs (well, cassettes back then…) and handing them out to anyone who would listen while he was in high school. Over the past few years he has worked on creating a style that has evolved from loud chaotic distortion into elaborate, layered instrumentals that evoke sense memory and emotion. Recent years have seen that passion segue into production work.
